Glen Chilton to speak about new book

Author and biologist Glen Chilton will be at the Semiahmoo Library (1815 152 St.) on Saturday, Dec. 8, to talk about his newest book, Attack of the Killer Rhododendrons.

Chilton, a finalist for the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, is also an internationally recognized ornithologist and author of The Curse of the Labrador Duck.

In Attack, he visits Ireland to witness how rhododendrons – an ornamental plant that escaped a private garden – now threaten to choke out the last of the great oak forests of the United Kingdom.
